The popular resort of Dunoon has lovely bays, pretty gardens, a pleasant promenade and a Victorian pier. Known as the gateway to the Highlands, the town is surrounded by the rolling hills of Argyll Forest Park.
From your hotel, you can watch the comings and goings on the busy River Clyde – perhaps you might even spot seals basking on the rocks at low water.
Out and about we set sail for the delightful Isle of Bute with its old fashioned atmosphere. We spend another day on the enchanting Isle of Arran and our final outing cruises us across the water to magical Millport.

Let’s board our boat and set sail to explore the peaceful island haven of Bute with its heatherclad moorlands, magnificent Esplanade Gardens and splendid architecture. We continue to Rothesay, renowned for its mighty castle, palm trees and promenade.
We spend a day on the bonnie Isle of Arran, dubbed “Scotland in Miniature” with its mighty mountains, sheltered coves and verdant forests. Perhaps visit Brodick Castle & Gardens – a Victorian estate and a National Trust property that houses an impressive collection of fine furniture, art work and sporting trophies.
Look forward to sailing to magical Millport, a pretty settlement that curves around a sandy bay backed by a seafront promenade. This quirky town is home to Britain’s smallest cathedral whilst its Garrison House is an eye-catching Gothic building and home to the Museum of the Cumbraes. Be sure to snap a photo of Millport’s famous crocodile!
After breakfast, we travel home.
